Our favorite morsel from the blogs.

Bobbing for apples: After recent ABC crackdowns, state liquor license regulators may have muddied the waters about whether or not mixing up sangria (in Spanish, "bloody") in a commercial establishment is a crime. For Hoodscope blogger Aly, it'd be a crime not to indulge. Today she flaunts half a dozen local favorites, from the rite-of-passage pitchers at Cha Cha Cha (you can't truly say you've lived in San Francisco without first loving, then sort of hating the elixir Aly calls "inconsistent") to the fusiony Asian mixup at Burma Superstar and B Star (lychees, Asian pears, Fujis).

But the one she love-loves? Limon Rotisserie's hammer-delay thirst quencher ("it may take you a few glasses to feel a nice buzz ... [but] with plenty of chopped fruit dices, it's often you'll get a piece of fruit with every sip and sometimes an ice chip here and there"). Read Aly's complete listicle here. And if, next time you're out, you witness a barkeep getting cuffed for adding fruit to cheap red wine, well: At least you'll know it was worth it.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
